Aloha! Do you love both tropical cocktails and mules?🍹 • If the answer is yes, then I have a tasty drink for you today! 😋 • I wanted to combine some local flavors from here in Hawai’i, so I am using two locally made vodkas, pineapple juice from my own plants, lime from a friends tree, and some hibiscus syrup made from our hibiscus! 🍍🌳 🌺 • Since the coconut, pineapple, hibiscus syrup, and even ginger beer are sweet, I have added in some ginger bitters to help balance things out. ⚖️ • This is a refreshing drink and especially fun if you can drink it out of a “mule of the sea” mug (ok, it’s a sea horse...). 🐴😂 • Cocktail: “Island Mule” Glass: Tiki or copper mug @tradervicsworldwide • Ingredients: 1oz / 30ml vodka @oceanvodka 1oz / 30ml coconut vodka @islanddistillers 1oz / 30ml fresh pineapple juice .5oz / 15ml fresh lime juice .25 / 7,5ml hibiscus syrup 6 drops ginger bitters @infusebitters 4oz / 120ml ginger beer @regattacraftmixers • Preparation: Add all ingredients to shaker—except ginger beer—and shake with ice until chilled.

Aloha! Need a refreshing break from all those summer projects? 👷‍♂️🧰🛠 • This herby, citrus, and melon cocktail will perk you right up! 😅 • The tasty Alpine Gin brings a fresh citrus flavor of its own and pairs so nicely with these flavors. • If anyone asks, just tell them you are checking another item off of your “honey do list”... ✅ • Cocktail: “Honeydew List” Glass: Coupe • Ingredients: 2oz / 60ml Alpine gin @alpinedistilling 1.5oz / 45ml fresh honeydew melon juice .5oz / 15ml fresh lime juice .5oz / 15ml honey syrup 5-6 thai basil leaves • Preparation: Add basil leaves and lime juice to shaker and muddle to express oils.

Aloha! When life gives you pineapples... make a Royal Hawaiian! 👑🍍 • This recipe comes from Empress Gin @empress1908gin. They are renowned for their gorgeous, purple gin that is a delight in cocktails. 💜 • Alas, I don’t have any myself, so I had to use some of my home infused gin instead. I’m sure it’s not as fabulous as the real thing, but it still makes a pretty drink. 😉 • Cocktail: “Royal Hawaiian” Glass: Highball • Ingredients: 1.5oz / 45ml butterfly pea flower infused gin 1oz / 30ml pineapple juice .5oz / 15ml lemon juice .5oz / 15ml orgeat syrup @simplygalagourmet • Preparation: Add all ingredients to shaker, add ice, and shake until chilled.

Aloha! Here’s a little blast from the past that is perfect for these hot summer days! 😅 • The talented mixologist Helen (@sheshedcocktails) whipped up this delicious drink last year during her summer (she lives in Australia). It was so tasty that I made it for myself shortly after (you can find it if you scroll down a while). • I never forgot how good this one was and have decided to make it again, but this time using some of my favorite Regatta Craft Mixers Royal Oak ginger ale. This is such a tasty ginger ale and really works nicely with the pineapple, raspberry, melon, coconut, and lemon flavors! • This drink is truly summer in a cup! Thanks again Helen for all your tasty treats! Make sure to check out her account for daily cocktails that are always inspiring!🤩 • Cocktail: “Regatta Summer Cup” Glass: Highball • Ingredients: 1oz / 30ml raspberry vodka @newamsterdamvodka .5oz / 15ml sloe gin @dekuypercocktails .5oz / 15ml melon liqueur @dekuypercocktails .5oz / 15ml coconut rum @malibu_rum .5oz / 15ml fresh lemon juice 2oz / 60ml pineapple juice 3oz / 90ml ginger ale @regattacraftmixers • Preparation: Put everything—except ginger ale—in a shaker and shake until chilled.

Aloha! I hope you are all still feeling dangerous! 🔥 • I made my first cantarito a few months ago and fell in love with this delicious, classic cocktail. It is still one that I’ll often throw together when I don’t have anything else particularly in mind. 🤤 • When I decided to come up with a series of dangerous cocktails featuring Dano’s tequila, the cantarito was at the top of my list. I wanted to make it spicy, but also change it to match that pineapple and jalapeño infusion. 🍍🌶 • This definitely is much different than the standard grapefruit version, but it’s very tasty...and maybe a little dangerous... 😉 • Cocktail: “Dano’s Dangerous Cantarito” Glass: Jarrito or Goblet • Ingredients: 2oz / 30ml pineapple-jalapeño tequila @danostequila 1oz / 30ml pineapple juice .5oz / 15ml agave nectar .5oz / 15ml lemon juice .5oz / 15ml lime juice .5oz / 15ml Hawaiian chili pepper water Dash of sea salt Club soda @regattacraftmixers • Preparation: Add all ingredients—except salt and soda—to ice filled shaker and shake until chilled. Add salt to bottom of glass and open pour shaker contents into glass. Add additional ice if needed and top off with club soda. Garnish with various fruit wheels. Serve with a glass straw. • ♻️ I have partnered with @surfsidesips so that all of you can get a discount on any reusable glass product from them!

Aloha! What’s that...you need more dangerous drinks?! ⚠️ • Ok, let’s do this! Here’s another cocktail featuring not one, but two of Dano’s ‘Dangerous’ tequilas! ✌️ • I used grilled pineapple juice for that special flavor, mango nectar that is tropical and sweet, sour mix for a citrus punch, and chili pepper water for some heat. 🌶 • Stay dangerous everyone! 😉 • Cocktail: “Tropical & Dangerous” Glass: Rocks • Ingredients: 1oz / 30ml Dano’s blanco tequila @danostequila 1oz / 30ml Dano’s pineapple-jalapeño tequila @danostequila 1oz / 30ml grilled pineapple juice 1oz / 30ml mango nectar 1oz / 30ml sweet & sour mix .5oz / 15ml Hawaiian chili pepper water • Sweet & Sour mix: 1 part fresh lemon juice 1 part fresh lime juice 1 part sugar 1 part water • Preparation: Add all ingredients to shaker and shake with ice until chilled. Strain into glass with ice. Garnish with a pineapple leaf and pineapple chunks.

Aloha! Have you heard of Dano’s Dangerous Tequila? 🙋🏻‍♂️ • As the story goes, Dano liked infusing tequila with pineapple and jalapeño. This was a big hit, so later a deal was reached with a tequila distillery in Mexico to infuse their high quality tequila as well as distribute their full tequila line. You can now purchase Dano’s Tequila in blanco, reposado, añejo, and the original pineapple & jalapeño infused! 🤩 • It occurred to me (well right away actually) that the middle name of this tequila is “Dangerous”. I think that is telling me how “dangerously” delicious it is, but it also makes me think that it needed some “dangerous” cocktails! 🚧 • How do you make something more dangerous? I’m thinking you add some spicy heat, drop in some Everclear, and light it on fire! 🔥 • Is that dangerous enough for you? 😉 • Cocktail: “Dangerous Is My Middle Name” Glass: Pilsner • Ingredients: 2oz / 60ml pineapple & jalapeño infused tequila @danostequila 2oz / 60ml fresh pineapple juice .5oz / 15ml Ancho Reyes chili ancho liqueur @anchoreyes .5oz / 15ml fresh lime juice .25oz / 7,5ml cinnamon syrup @simplygalagourmet .25oz / 7,5ml tamarind chili syrup @simplygalagourmet .5oz / 15ml Everclear @makeityourownbyeverclear • Preparation: Add all ingredients to shaker and shake with ice until chilled. Strain into glass with ice. Garnish with a pineapple leaf. Add a little Everclear to an empty lime shell and light for fire for some extra danger! 🔥 Serve with a glass straw. • ♻️ I have partnered with @surfsidesips so that all of you can get a discount on any reusable glass product from them!

Aloha! Are you familiar with the mountain apple? 🍎 • The mountain/rose apple (ohi’a ‘ai in Hawaiian) has a waxy, red outer skin and a crisp meat similar to jicama. They have a flavor somewhere between a rose and a pear...very unique! • A close friend of ours juiced some from her farm and gifted us a bottle. The juice is a gorgeous pink hue! 💖 • I decided to combine the juice with some Alpine Gin that has citrus and spices, some cardamom syrup, fresh lemon, and Preserve liqueur for a sweet finale! 😋 • I know many of you won’t be able to duplicate this cocktail, but it is out of this world! 🤩 • Cocktail: “Alpine Of My Eye” Glass: Coupe • Ingredients: 1.5oz / 45ml Alpine gin @alpinedistilling .75oz / 22,5ml Preserve liqueur @alpinedistilling 2oz / 60ml fresh mountain apple juice .75oz / 22,5ml fresh lemon juice .25oz / 7,5ml cardamom spice syrup @boozybotanicals 1 egg white • Preparation: Add all ingredients to shaker. Dry shake for 60 seconds. Add ice to shaker and shake for 15 seconds. Strain into coupe glass and garnish with flower. • Keep exploring the world 🗺 one drink at a time. • Mahalo! 🤙 • • • #alpineofmyeye #mountainapple #gin #preserve #cardamom #eggwhite #foam #foamgoals #alpinemoments #cocktailrecipe #garnishgame #cocktailoftheday #drinkoftheday #parkcity #supportsmallbusiness #pauhana #hilife #luckywelivehawaii #hawaiilife

Aloha! Nothing cools you down faster than a frozen drink! 🥶 • I had some honeydew purée from making juice and thought it would be awesome in a frozen daiquiri. • Once again I have added a little bit of melon liqueur to boost the overall melon flavor! 🍈 • You can make a frozen daiquiri in almost any flavor, so get yourself the fruit of your choice and have at it! 😀 • Cocktail: “Frozen Honeydew Daiquiri” Glass: Hurricane • Ingredients: 2oz / 60ml Huihui light rum @kuleanarumworks 3oz / 90ml fresh honeydew purée .75oz / 22,5ml fresh lime juice .5oz / 15ml honey syrup .25oz / 7,5ml melon liqueur @de_kuyper_cocktails 1 cup crushed ice • Preparation: Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth and creamy.

Aloha! Do you love a glass of iced tea on a summer day?🍹 • I’m not exactly sure what’s in Pimm’s (I think it’s a secret recipe), but somehow combining it with lemon and ginger ale tastes exactly like a lemon iced tea! 🍋 • If you are looking for something really simple, completely refreshing, and that doesn’t pack too much of a punch, this is a perfect beverage for you. Enjoy! 😎 • Cocktail: “Pimm’s Cup” Glass: Goblet • Ingredients: 1.5oz / 45ml Pimm’s @pimmsgb 1oz / 30ml fresh lemon juice 4oz / 120ml ginger ale @regattacraftmixers • Preparation: Build in glass. Fill glass with ice. Add Pimm’s, lemon juice, and ginger ale. Garnish with lemon wheel.
